APO 2016 High School Essay Contest Brochure, Topics, and Due Date


The due date is February 15, 2016.


Here are the two question choices or topics for the 2016 APO. You may choose either one -- there is no preference or advantage to choosing one over the other -- and write an essay about it in French, German, or Spanish. Then carefully follow the directions in the brochure (the images of which you will see as screanshots, below, in this blog). If you'd like me to send you an original brochure, email me [joseluismurphy@gmail.com] or call me [201-227-3265] and leave your name and address. 


Topic I.

Are the recent advances in digital technology that give individuals and groups the ability to communicate near-instantaneously worldwide through social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr, Whatsapp, Skype, etc.) altering, aiding, or hampering humanity’s ethical progress? How does technological progress relate to ethical progress?



 Topic II.


Here are some idioms that are commonly heard. “It is what it is.” “What goes around comes around.” “It was destined to happen that way.” “He’s in a better place now.” “Maybe it’s all for the best.” “Life’s not fair.” “It’s just fate.” “That’s just how it goes.” “He’ll get his.” “That’s the way the ball bounces.” “You can’t make this stuff up.” These sentences all seem to imply some sort of philosophical meaning. In your philosophical analysis of them, what implications or worldviews do you read in them?

Life is too short to waste. Dreams are fulfilled only through action, not through endless planning to take action
